“UnisourceLink, our advanced e-commerce system, provides a suite of tools that allow Property Management companies to standardize products across large portfolios to gain operational efficiencies and insure compliance with corporate initiatives,” said Garrett Gerst, Senior Marketing Manager-Facility Solutions for Unisource. “Budgets for individual buildings can be set based on occupancy, with alerts and an approval process for spending beyond the budget. The Unisource field sales team can use the tool to perform an assessment on buildings that are consistently over budget, to help identify and address issues,” he said.
“The Green Gauge report also provides customers with an easy-to-read analysis of certified sustainable cleaning product purchases that meet stringent LEED-EB: O&M requirements. Customers can use the report to review ratings on multiple buildings by individual location or as a group,” said Gerst. “The report also includes a list of products that do not meet LEED requirements. This allows a Unisource Sales Professional to quickly identify and recommend products that better meet LEED standards.”
Gerst and Andrew Gustyn, Director of Sustainability for Unisource Worldwide, recently co-authored a whitepaper on using Green Cleaning-related points to maximize the points earned during LEED-EB: O&M certification, which can lead to higher lease revenues. The paper, titled A Simplified Path to LEED-EB: O&M Success, will also be available in Unisource Booth 633 within the Green Pavilion of the Every Building Show.
